A must read May 10 2012
By Brian - Published on
Format: Hardcover
In recognizing that the past will not be prologue, Dr. Webman provides a path for investors to navigate the increasingly complex global financial markets to meet their long-term investment goals. Dr. Webman provides a compelling argument to move investors beyond the blame game and their U.S. centric bias to instead turn their attention to great investment opportunities taking shape all around the globe. The book is as humorous as it is insightful. I highly recommend Money Shift for investors looking to succeed in the 21st century.

Great on investing pitfalls, short on prosper July 9 2012
By Michael L. Loren - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was excited when I saw this book. Webman is an engaging speaker on Bloomberg. The book is smart and funny,but is short on specifics. He makes a strong case for the difficulty we are facing for growing our investments. The future appears to be in emerging markets, however we are still left with this scary volatility that destroys any short or mid term investment strategy. The book could have given more specifics on the basics of savings. He does briefly mention some of the advantages of TIPS. My overall feeling was he missed the tremendous potential that is here in the USA. So much of the book was written with common clichés "caution, careful" were commonly used. The book is very good description of the investment pitfalls we face, but doesn't give much meat on the aim of how to prosper.

well written easy read July 9 2012
By Michigan Reviewer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Jerry Webman is a very succesful man. He is chief economist for Oppenheimer Funds. I can see why he has this title. This book is very well written. Very informative, yet relatively easy to dig into and extract the kind of information you may be looking for. Anything totally new or earth shattering here? Maybe not, but some good advice nonetheless. His major theses include looking outside mature economies, like the US, Europe or poor old Japan (I have read so many finance books lately about the grim prognosis for our Nippon friends). He recommends the BRIC nations, but then again, this is hardly new stuff. He also recommends investing in corporations that will cater to the Boomer generation as we get older and more needy. Once again, not something I have not heard before, but wise counsel. He also looks into diversification of a portfolio, but does admit that this, too, has its drawbacks and limitations. He does say the prosperity most of us boomers have enjoyed was the exception and certainly not the rule. In terms of stock valuation as well as in real estate. He is quite bearish on bonds, but then again, apart from those who sell them, who isn't. His writing style is usually quite crisp and smart. His humor is very dry, but quite funny at the same time. He pokes fun at the lack of humor of most economists. A very good book. Don't expect to be lunching with Buffett anytime soon, but Webman would be the first to tell you the likelihood of that happening is about as good as Tom Cruise reconciling with Katie. Fun read.

A readable guide that gives real guidance on a complicated topic May 17 2012
By SPS - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"MoneyShift" is an immensely readable guide that gives practical guidance on how to cope, in fact prosper, in the current economy. It replaces wishful thinking with understandable suggestions. Turn off CNBC or Bloomberg for a few hours and read this book!
